Smith was on the final year of his contract with the Chiefs heading into the 2018 season, but now Washington has extended him to the tune of an additional 4 years with considerable guaranteed money. Smith, too, is entering the past year of his contract, so Washington still hasn't necessarily found its future quarterback.

Cousins went 24-23 in three years as the Redskins' sole starting quarterback, but he threw for more than 4,000 yards and 25 touchdowns in all three seasons. Smith has a cap number of $20.6 million for 2018, and the Chiefs will save $17 million. However, the Chiefs have lost a slew of home playoff games over the years and blew an 18-point lead to the Tennessee Titans in this year's Wild Card game.

This effectively ends Kirk Cousins' tenure in Washington, and it is expected that he will hit the free agent market. Smith has thrown for 102 touchdowns and just 34 interceptions during his tenure with the Chiefs, but he's failed to shed his reputation as a game manager and never took Kansas City past the Divisional Round.

The deal would allow the Chiefs to install 2017 first-round pick Patrick Mahomes as the starting quarterback.

Cousins started for the Redskins for the past three full seasons, unseating Robert Griffin III.

The Washington Redskins and Kansas City Chiefs reportedly agreed to a trade that will send Alex Smith to the Redskins.

Kansas City last spring drafted Smith's replacement in Patrick Mahomes. Approximately six teams will likely be bidding for Cousins' talents, including the Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, Jacksonville Jaguars, Denver Broncos, Buffalo Bills, and potentially the Miami Dolphins. The Redskins placed the franchise tag on Cousins, 29, after both the 2015 and 2016 seasons.

According to Adam Schefter, the Redskins were not the only team in play. Griffin III is no longer playing professional football after suffering multiple season-ending injuries, and Cousins is on his way to the most lucrative contract in NFL history. If that's in Washington, Cousins wants to be the leader of a team that is winning on a consistent basis.

"I don't know that this is limbo, but if this is, it (stinks)", Smith told the Star.
